PMMA Balls

PMMA Balls from Goodfellow come in 6 sizes ranging from 1 to 30 mm diameter. Made from polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), these balls exhibit excellent optical clarity, high stiffness, and good dimensional stability. Polymethylmethacrylate balls find use in a variety of scientific applications including flow visualization experiments and particle image velocimetry. They are also commonly used as spacers and low friction bearings in industrial equipment.
